Allen gets a bad rap with some Rock history types , but if you were a hip adult, maybe a jazz fan, rock n' roll seemed pretty dumb . He famously would read lyrics, like "Be-Bop-a-Lula" to have fun with them . Years later (1966) he dis the same with "Eleanor Rigby", but the point was not humor, but how the "Yeah yeah yeah" guys had matured into something a lot deeper .

Dudley
This was before my time but I did look into him and I was surprised that I had never come across him before.
He is certainly a cultural.icon.
